The 161st Ohio State Fair opens this morning. Farm animals, homemade pies and the butter cows will of course be part of the fair. And vendors will also sell some new fair food featuring bacon and bugs.
It’s Grilling Season!
Grilling season is here and that means it’s time for Steve Raichlen to break out his charcoal and smokers! Beginning this Saturday PRIMAL GRILL WITH STEVE RAICHLEN is back to help viewers take their grilling to the next level. This show focuses on how to master fire and then really cook with it, the primal way. Think of mussels grilled on a bed of flaming pine needles, salmon roasted on redwood sticks in front of an open fire or T-bone steaks grilled directly on the embers. Get your grill on with Steve Raichlen Saturday afternoons at 2:30pm.
John Besh is back with his new series CHEF JOHN BESH’S FAMILY TABLE. In this new series chef Besh focuses on home cooking. He prepares the kind of meals the family can sit around the table every night to enjoy. Shot entirely on location at chef Besh’s home outside New Orleans, as you can imagine, each dish is infused with the ingredients, techniques and heritage of Louisiana. Recipes include: Grandmother’s fried chicken and potato salad, seafood gumbo, sloppy joe sliders and creamy heirloom tomato soup. Chef Besh starts cooking Saturday afternoons at 2:00pm.
We also have a new addition to our Saturday late afternoon how-to block of programs, KATIE BROWN WORKSHOP. Some of you who watch “Create” on WOSU PLUS may already be familiar with Katie Brown. But this will be the first time in years that we’ve had Katie on WOSU TV as a regular part of our Saturday afternoons. With her Midwestern charm, and “keep it simple” ethic, Katie Brown demonstrates how to make a house a home. Viewers get a bit of everything from KATIE BROWN WORKSHOP, planning and cooking a dinner party, working in the garden or redecorating a room. The best part is she is very budget-friendly in her approach. KATIE BROWN WORKSHOP airs every Saturday at 4:00pm.
